40 killed in Aden’s Military Parade attacks,Yemen

At least 40 people have been killed and dozens wounded in a missile attack and coordinated suicide bombings in the southern port city of Aden.

The official says the missile struck a military parade underway  in Aden’s neighborhood of Breiqa, the temporary seat of the UN-recognised Yemeni government.

The official didn’t give a breakdown for the casualties at the parade but said several commanders were among the casualties.

A senior commander of the so-called Security Belt’s First Support Brigade was reported to be among the casualties. The Security Belt is a force trained and supported by the United Arab Emirates, a key partner in a military alliance assembled by Saudi Arabia to fight against the Houthis.

Separately, a suicide attack on a police station in the city’s Omer mukhtar neighborhood killed at least three soldiers and wounded 20 others.

The Houthi rebel movement, which controls the capital, Sanaa, claimed responsibility for the attack.
